In-Depth Analysis - The EU Rapid Deployment Capacity: This time, it’s for real? - PE 702.568 - Subcommittee on Security and Defence

Fri, 28/10/2022 - 00:00
The EU’s Strategic Compass (SC) calls for the creation of a ‘European Rapid Deployment Capacity’ (EU RDC) that would allow the EU to swiftly deploy up to 5 000 troops into non-permissive environments for different types of crises. The In-Depth Analysis (IDA) examines how this objective might be achieved successfully. It looks at the problems related to decision making and political will that have structurally hampered the deployment of the EU Battlegroups since their creation in 2007. It also looks at the conditions under which Member States might be willing to make first use of Article 44, which provides for small groups of Member States to act within an EU framework. Secondly, the IDA analyses operational questions, such as the Rapid Deployment Capacity’s (RDC) possible tasks, force packages and illustrative scenarios, the concept and size, exercises, costs, and addressing shortfalls. Thirdly, the analysis discusses command and control challenges, especially how to rapidly develop the Military Planning and Conduct Capability (MPCC) as the RDC’s headquarters, and the role of Operational Headquarters (OHQ). The paper highlights the considerable potential for the RDC to substantially improve on the Battlegroups, strengthen the EU’s strategic autonomy, and positively contribute to the EU’s integrated approach to security and peace. Yet, the timetable is highly ambitious and will require Member States to give its achievement a high priority in their contributions. Furthermore, the RDC is only likely to succeed if the right lessons are learnt, not just in terms of improving operational readiness and capacity, but also crucially in terms of political signalling, commitment, and stronger sense of national ownership. The authors provide a number of recommendations for EU institutions on how this might be achieved in the short and longer term.

Highlights - European Defence Industry Reinforcement - Subcommittee on Security and Defence

Tue, 25/10/2022 - 21:23
On 26 October, SEDE Members will hold a first exchange of views on the proposal for a Regulation establishing the European Defence Industry Reinforcement through Common Procurement Act (i.e. the Joint Defence Procurement Instrument) with representatives of the European External Action Services, European Commission Directorate General of Defence Industry and Space (DG DEFIS) and the European Defence Agency. This short-term instrument, proposed for the period 2022-2024, should help Member States to jointly procure defence equipment to replenish the stocks they have given Ukraine to defend itself from Russia's illegal war of aggression. The Joint Defence Procurement instrument, including a €500 million EU budget, shall be adopted by the end of the year, which will require intense negotiations within the Parliament and amongst the institutions.

Highlights - Operational support to women, peace and security through the CSDP missions - Subcommittee on Security and Defence

Fri, 21/10/2022 - 14:30
In the framework of the Gender equality week, SEDE Members will hold on 26 October an exchange of views on the operational support to women, peace and security through the EU's CSDP missions and operations. Since the adoption of the UNSCR resolution 1325, which marked a milestone in recognizing the essential role of women in maintaining and promoting peace and security, numerous initiatives have been taken on the EU level to systematically integrate a gender perspective in all of the Union's external actions. During the debate in SEDE, three advisors deployed in different missions and operations - EUAM Iraq, EUTM Mozambique and EUAM Ukraine - will share their experiences, and provide factual overviews of the main achievements, best practices and areas where further improvements are needed.
